EPL: Kane keeps Tottenham in title hunt with Cardiff romp

Tottenham surrendered the chance to establish themselves as Liverpool FC's closest rivals in the Premier League title race after having scored 11 times in two games.

As indicated by statistics provided by Transfermarkt, that goal proved to be momentous for Kane, as Cardiff were the only side he had never previously managed to score against in the Premier League.

Paul Merson is backing Tottenham Hotspur to return to winning ways on New Year's Day when Spurs take on Cardiff City at Wembley.

Pochettino, who despite garnering credit for developing young players is yet to win a trophy in his managerial career, says he will be able to fill the large gap that will be left with Son leaving for Asian Cup duty.

Tottenham bounced back from a 3-1 home loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers, which was their first game since seriously entering the title conversation.

The England striker has now scored 16 goals in his last 12 Premier League away matches against newly-promoted teams.

Kane filled the number 10 position again to free the in-form Son, who easily evaded the attention of Morrison to fire home his eighth goal in nine games.

"I don't care", Pochettino said, when asked about Thursday's game.

"At Cardiff, they won against Leicester (on Saturday), Leicester after two incredible victories against Chelsea and Manchester City, and Cardiff sure is going to have all the confidence, so it's going to be a tough game".

"I think we are so happy and so pleased". Kane's support play is often overlooked, and once again he held the ball up and brought others into play expertly at the Cardiff City Stadium. "Of course I will watch it, it will be an unbelievable game and I enjoy football". "The league should enforce they play at Wembley now for the rest of the season".

Neil Warnock's side made life hard for the Lilywhites on October 6 at Wembley Stadium, but Pochettino's team ground out a one-goal victory thanks to Eric Dier's early opener. "It was a very tough period for us".

'Man United, it was two-and-a-half minutes, today one-and-a-half minutes.
